A document as referred to in previous posts is technically a word processor document. The programs are similar regardless of what kind of computer you have. Some of the common word programs are: PC computers: Microsoft Word Word Pad Note Pad Mac computers: Microsoft Word Text Edit You will need to see if you have one of these programs or something similar on your computer. If you don't see any of these programs in your "Start" menu and want to see which program you have you can search your program files: PC computers: Click on "Start" menu at bottom left corner of computer screen Click on "My Computer" Click on your "C" drive Click on "Program Files" In this folder you will see other folders for the programs loaded onto your computer. If you have a "Microsoft Office" folder, Click on it. Click on the "Office" folder Click on "Winword.exe" to open the Microsoft Word program. Mac computers (depending upon how you set up your desktop): Click on your hard drive icon Click on the "Applications" folder The applications loaded on your computer should be in this folder. If any of the programs listed above are in this folder you can click on the appropriate icon to start the program. Once you have opened a word processing program: Click on "File" Click on "Save". Name the document what you want and tell it to save to your desktop. Now you are ready to rock. :-) At this point you can type in the information that will be needed for your TOPSA photos or you can copy and paste the information from your TOPSA entries already loaded. To copy information: highlight the information you want to copy then: For PC computers, hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "C" key For Mac computers, hold down the "Command" key and press the "C" key To paste information: Place your cursor/arrow pointer where you want to paste your information and click then: For PC computers, hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "V" key For Mac computers, hold down the "Command" key and press the "V" key The copied information should appear where you had placed your cursor/arrow pointer Steph Michel
